Sycamore Bowl

Made a good start to a new bowl today, at the moment ive only roughed it out with the axe & adze and cleaned up the inside a bit with the gouges, so it's a bit of a rough diamond at present.

I'm going to leave it for at least a week i think, before i even contemplate doing any more to it as the wood is still very wet, being that the log it came from was only cut about ten days ago, but it has the beginnings of a half decent bowl - well at the moment.


  1. I've been following your blog for a while now and it looks like you're living my dream. From someone who only gets to carve once every couple of months, please say even you have a disaster now and again. On Saturday I had about an hour to carve a spoon, messed it up and took too much away from the bowl, but everything you do looks fantastic. For the mortals out their, like me, can you just mess a spoon up now and again, just to give us all hope!

    1. Trust me, i cock a good share up just like everyone else

  2. Glad to hear it, perhaps this could be another blog? Carving Cock-ups?
